The church sits in the place of a former Romanesque church. The three-sided chancel with a star-shaped ribbed arch is said to be the oldest of its kind in Slovenia. The Baroque nave carries a Palladian façade and the ceiling features a fresco of the Mary of the Assumption from 1931.The large altar is also Baroque and is the work of the stonemasons of Gorizia. There are crypts contained inside the church dating back to the times when a graveyard was still kept near the church. The outer supporting column of the Baroque chancel contains a sundial from the 15th century.
